Contents: Transparency International (TI) is a global nongovernmental organization with more than 90 local national chapters and chapters-in-formation. TI is not an investigatory organization. Its mission is to generate educational materials, lobby for reform, and provide advice on how to combat corruption. Its website is current, reporting on recent and upcoming events. The home page is organized with links to current news; regional pages that connect to TI chapters; research, surveys, and indices; and helpful tools such as an anticorruption handbook. The pages within the site are not stylish, but provide links to full text PDF scholarly articles (with shorter summaries,) working papers, annual reports from 1999, press releases and conference notices. Each page is searchable, has a direct e-mail feature, and provides the name and contact information for the editor of the page. TI also links to CORISweb (http://www.corisweb.org/) its portal to over 16,000 resources. CORISweb allows anyone to enter information that meets editorial standards in a variety of languages using simple online forms. CORISweb includes databases on resources, events, projects, news, contacts and courses.
